* The opening scene in Vol. 1 where {{Comicbook/The Avengers}} start acting bizarrely out of character during a mission to stop the {{Comicbook/Incredible Hulk}} from destroying TheWhiteHouse. It turns out [[spoiler: that it's just Alex playing an MMORPG with his online friends]]. Actually scratch that, ''all'' of the opening scenes introducing the main characters and their families are quite humorous as well.

* As the team reads through their copy of the Abstract, which tells the history of the Pride, they reach the part where the Pride first decided to have one heir each in order to avoid a fight over which six members of the Pride would get to live on after their plan for world destruction was completed. And why did they make this plan? Because Janet Stein, who, again, was planning on destroying the whole world in another decade, had gotten pregnant and [[EvenEvilHasStandards was against getting an abortion.]]



* There's something funny about [[spoiler:Ultron]] predicting that there's a ''99.99% likelihood'' that the Avengers will have a distinct lack in diversity in the coming years--''enough to let a new super who'd only recently come into his powers join the team.''

* In the BreatherEpisode before the New Pride arc begins, Molly has a DayInTheLimelight story where she gets kidnapped by a different team of runaways who force her to help them rob a bank.

* During the battle with the Gibborim, Victor tries to do a FastballSpecial with Molly. Molly is the strongest member of the team. Guess who turns out to be Wolverine.

opening issue of the final arc, Nico is concerned that Klara is spending too much time watching TV, and asks Molly to talk to her, and maybe "explain about the dangers of vitamin D deficiency." Molly... doesn't quite deliver this message:
-->'''Molly:''' ''Hey, KLAAARAAAA!'' Hey Klara, Nico says you're deficient!



* In the first issue, Nico desperately seeks to save Gert's life, and thus uses magic to summon a doctor. Said doctor turns out to be a podiatrist who was brushing her teeth at that very moment.




to:

* How do Nico, Chase, and Gert get back to the Hostel? They call up a Lyft driver, who is apparently not the least bit perturbed about the fact that the three passengers are drenched in blood.
